Continuity and References to the X-Men Universe


  • Marcos' ringtone is the 1990's X-Men animated series theme.
  • Producer Matt Nix says the cameo by X-Men creator Stan Lee happened through chance. Lee was in Dallas for a comic convention, which was where shooting was taking place. He was able to shoot his cameo in 20 minutes. Nix said, "That's the kind of thing where I think people sometimes underestimate the degree to which we who make the show are just another group of fanboys trying to make something happen by the skin of our teeth."
  • A nod to the X-Man, Wolverine, there is a painting of a wolverine on the wall behind Eclipse when he's waiting for his meeting with Reed Strucker.
  • One time X-Man Tessa, a.k.a. Sage makes her live action debut in this episode as a member of the secret Mutant Underground.
  • When Marcos enters Tex's Lounge, the neon is only lit to read "X'S".
